HC Deb 11 March 1925 vol 181 c1320
60. Captain GARRO-JONES

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he has any and, if so, what information about the projected French air base at Cherbourg?

The SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Samuel Hoare)

I understand that the projected air base at Querqueville, near Cherbourg, will, according to the plans of the French Ministry of Marine. consist of one squadron of fighting aeroplanes.


Has the right hon. Gentleman heard nothing about the new developments, for instance, the underground construction which is contemplated at Cherbourg?


No, Sir, I have not.
